2012 Wharton Restructuring Conference

In the past few years, we have promoted a number of fantastic events at U Penn's Wharton School.  This year is no exception:  On February 17th, Wharton is hosting their 2012 Wharton Restructuring and Turnaround Conference. The title of this year's conference is particularly relevant: "The Great Deleveraging - Dealing with Debt on a Global Scale."  Panelists include players from all facets of the distressed debt and restructuring world; firms speaking include: PIMCO, Bayside, FTI, DB, Monarch, Centerview, Alix, Alvarez, all the top bankruptcy law firms, and many others.  One panelist I am particularly interested in hearing from is the Honorable Kevin Gross: Chief Judge of the US Bankruptcy Court of Delaware, who has been a fixture in the distressed debt world presiding over cases like Nortel, Newpage, and the LA Dodgers just to name a few.   The event will also feature a keynote from Marc Lasry, Co-Founder and CEO of Avenue Capital, which should be fantastic.

Fore more information about the conference, please visit the event page here: "2012 Wharton Restructuring and Turnaround Conference."  Distressed Debt Investing will be in attendance and we hope to see you there.

Its interesting to see how many distressed debt hedge funds under $500mn AUM have sprung up over the last few years. While I'm no distressed guy it seems that all the distressed deals are VERY crowded, everyone is playing in the same names.
